OnePlus Ace 2 Pro Summary: The recent announcement of the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro brought along a bunch of fascinating features. It boasts impressive specs like a maximum of 24 GB RAM, super-fast 150W charging, and a powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. What’s particularly noteworthy is that this fresh smartphone is the very first globally to feature a cooling solution that covers nearly 10,000 square millimetres. This achievement owes itself to OnePlus’ innovative redesign of the vapour chamber.
Even though OnePlus didn’t intend for this phone to be solely a gaming device, it’s gaining quite a reputation for its gaming capabilities. The entire device is encased in metal, which serves the purpose of antennas – a familiar concept. However, the Ace 2 Pro takes it up a notch with over 15 distinct elements that can function as antennas. Moreover, there have been enhancements in Wi-Fi stability through software updates. Adding to the allure, more than 100 games now support a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
